Resources for Celebrating Sukkot 5775

Sukkot is a time of gathering with family and friends to commemorate the 40 years the Israelites spent wandering in the desert, and to celebrate the harvest. May you have a joyous Sukkot 5775.

The Ushpizin Art Exhibit
The Ushpizin art exhibit will be held in the Adele Ginzberg Women's League Sukkah at JTS. The project began three years ago with many original works of art created specifically for the sukkah by JTS students and members of our community, and is designed to include new pieces each year until the entire sukkah is covered. This year, the sukkah will feature 11 new panels created by the JTS community and New York City artists.
